The Federal Attorney-General George Brandis says he doesn’t believe Australians are racist.

The comment comes as the Prime Minister gives the green light on changes to section 18c of the Racial Discrimination Act as well as the reasonable Australian test.

A reasonable person test has drawn criticism for what the criteria is for a reasonable person.

When questioned in the Senate, Senator George Brandis said he believes Australians aren’t racist.


Labor Senator and Yanyuwa woman Malarndirri McCarthy says she wishes she could believe there aren’t any racist Australians.
